Aug 29, 2017 – Historic Cambridge, MD was the site of a UFO meeting on August 29th. We planned to have 27 members and guests attend including 14 arriving by air, some from faraway places such as FL, CT, PA, NJ, WV and NC. Unfortunately, the weather did not cooperate. Rain, hard IFR weather and a 21-knot crosswind on a wet runway discouraged all fly ins. Maybe that’s why we 80-year-olds are still around to fly.
However, 14 brave souls drove up to 2.5 hours to get to the meeting. We introduced our new MD area rep, Dan Brown to the group. Tom Van Petten, our VA and NC area rep drove in from NC to remind us of his planned UFO meeting in Williamsburg, VA on October 12th. Tom also talked to us about his successful BasicMed experience. John Sullivan, the UFO Mid Atlantic Regional Manager, gave a short presentation on the UFO and answered questions. Kay’s Airport Restaurant did a wonderful job taking lunch orders and serving us in the Airport Training Room.
Many of us made new friends and heard a lot of interesting stories. Great group.
